New hires provide added depth to Inflexion

Inflexion Private Equity, the mid-market private equity investor, today announces the appointments of two new senior members to its investment team. Mark Williams and Florencia Kassai will both take up the role of Investment Director with immediate effect.

Mark brings with him substantial experience from Sovereign Capital Partners where he was an Investment Director involved in numerous investments across the education, healthcare and professional services markets. This included Mark leading the Euro Environmental Group, Greenwich School of Management and LPM transactions where he took a seat on their boards. Prior to his five years with Sovereign, Mark spent three years at BA Capital Partners Europe, Bank of America.

Florencia joins Inflexion from HgCapital where she was an Associate Director focusing on Business Services, with responsibility for deal origination, negotiation and execution. She was involved in deals such as ATC Group, JLA, Pulse, SHL and Computer Software Group. Before her five years with HgCapital, Florencia was with Bain & Company, advising European and US Private Equity clients on commercial due diligence engagements.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner commented “We are delighted to welcome Mark and Florencia to the Inflexion team. Their skillset and experience will be a great addition to Inflexion’s already exceptional team. We continue to work hard to develop and grow our business and be recognised for the top quality team we have in place.”

Our ongoing growth enables us to put a large and experienced team on any transaction, including a high proportion of decision-making senior personnel, resulting in a swift and efficient deal process.

2011 has been a very busy year for Inflexion so far; in addition to its team hires Inflexion has successfully completed two buyouts (Phlexglobal and Rhead Group), one take-private (Ideal Shopping Direct) and a highly profitable exit (Red Commerce).
